Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the last time Mary Harold will have a panic attack at school when kids call her "the grossest girl." If Mom wont move back to Alabama, her thirteen-year-old daughter will just have to drive herself 691 miles to Grandma Aymas farmhouse — and a whole new life. With Aymas loving support, Mary Harold is soon strong enough to help Bud, the Cherokee farm manager, wrangle the cows, and confident enough to stand up for his daughter, Dixie, a girl with a strain of peculiar that makes her whinny and stamp like a horse to keep the world at bay. Mary Harold still misses her mom, but has started to have dreams of the Black Warrior Forest that are offering clues. As she listens to their message, and to her own heart, she discovers how powerful and surprising the bonds of family can be.
